Scaffolding has gone up along the sides of 65 Fifth Avenue, for nearly forty years the home of the New School's Graduate Faculty of Social and Political Science. (Before that it was Lane's department store, donated to the school on its fiftieth anniversary in 1969). Soon, tarps will hide it. And when the tarps go down, the building will be gone. (A new, glass-skinned building will take its place.) These might be my last views of it.
